voters and say donate to the red cross. i think obama campaign's said to the folks in these states. this is our chance to do that. they probably have enough money to deal with this. we learned in 2005 with katrina, if the federal response is sluggish or looks unprepared for this, that's a worse damage to the president than anything else, and i think that the president has to do this. he's canceled four events in four states over the next two days. right now he's scheduled to go to green bay at the end of the tuesday. we'll see if that happens. probably unlikely. he may start again on wednesday when he's supposed in ohio. >> although to his benefit you could argue in some of the key states, places like new york and new jersey and connecticut, they're very strong governors there who are experienced with this stuff and unlikely to fumble the response. we'll see how that goes. let's bring in congresswoman marcia blackburn, a republican from tennessee. what impact do you think this storm will have to the presidential race? >> i'm not certain that it's going to have any direct impact. i
a vote against barack obama. a lot of those voters will say, barack obama is -- we can't afford four more years of this guy. they'll go with mitt romney. mitt romney has done a good job attacking through the middle. there's a lot more enthusiasm with republican voters. i haven't totaled polls. i've looked at them. my guys are smiling, too. i think ohio is going to go romney's way and i think that it's going to be one of those things that if you have somebody like rob portman working so closely with the romney campaign leading the charge, very popular senator, i think they'll do well in ohio. >> john, you have been getting bad press, the republicans have for this new ad running in ohio. let me play a little bit of it for you. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> chrysler thought that ad was so misleading they put out a statement making the point that, in fact, they're adding 1100 jobs in detroit and any jee

voters in ohio was president obama. he had to produce a photoid to vote. help me to understand recognizable person in the entire united states of america has to show his photoid why is it too much to ask that for the rest of that. most of them gave up the licenses and passport. if chicago requires voters id. those who say we ain't got voters fraud going on around here, they must have missed the powerful and disturbing reports filed by eric shawn who exposed voters fraud in multiple states. eric reportod hudson hallum a sitting democrat who pled guilty vodka voting scheme ited his father and city council and even a police officer. the u.s. attorney appointed by barak obama and eric holder got the guilty pleas and the resignation. it is just people don't usually get caught. in virginia this we're. patrick moran was forced to resign from his father's campaign after an undercover video showing young moran aiding and abetting fraud and get ballots and using forged documentings. i joked that you ought fovote early and often. but i never meant for people to take that literally. a frau
it's obama? >> yes. >> i think independent voters continue to move away from the president because he has not been able to convince people the economy will be better in the next four years. and the president remeans under 50%. and-- >> he, doesn't, in many of the states. i'm sorry, john. you want to do the real-- in many of the states, in many-- it didn't. in many of the states he is at 50%. >> >> schieffer: i'm going to give the reporters on a pass. go ahead. >> i do believe we do have a danger, though, of going to recount. and i hope we can control the passions exercised-- >> that's not a passion. if you want to get fact rul, that's all. >> and one of these days, i won't be interrupting you, but you will continue to interrupt me. >> yi will, when you're not fact rul, i will, actually. >> schieffer: 30 secondes, john. >> the president has demographic advantages and ground game advantages. the question is whether it allows him to hold back the romney surge that started after the denver debate and is waning and most analysts think has come to a standstill. the question is what the pres
. barack obama, if you look at the polling data, he has built a pretty significant lead among women voters. these are issues women care a lot about. barack obama is directly addressing them, directly saying, if you want your rights as a woman to plan your own life, your rights as a woman, to table to assert yourself, you better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the voters isong male pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out the game. can getan get thei -- who their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a sen
, the question is, how many questions do we have to ask before voters forget president obama killed bin laden? [cheers and applause] we'll be right back. v:p-x >> stephen: that's so much. [cheers and applause] welcome back. the presidential debates may be over, but i still need my fix. so i was glued to last night's indiana senate debate between pro-life democrat joe donnelly and even pro-er lifer republican richard moooouuuuurdock. [lightning] sorry, not sure why, but that happens sometimes when i say moooouuuurdock. [lightning] [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] now in the debate last night, one moment kinda stuck out. here's mourdock when questioned on abortion. >> i struggled with myself for a long time but i came to realize life is that gift from god, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that god intended to happen. [audience reacts] >> stephen: okay, let me just update the "days without a gop rape mention" board. [cheers and applause] [ laughter ] [ laughter ] now mourdock's comments upset many hoosiers and also possibly god. it really makes him look
out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is exclusively about weather patterns and fema and that gives a natural advantage to obama. the president looks for an intervoning cause and unable to do it yourself and the weather may help him. it may wind up that mother nature was the october surprise. >> i agree. >> i agree. >> steve: thank you for yoining us on this busy and storm monday morning. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, she tried to rock the boat. >> i don't care who you vote for as long as it is obama. (crowd booing) >> steve: sounded like madonna was booed an
younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack obama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying t a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv was swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want you to listen to this. it's pretty provocative. >> your first time should not be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. is to be with a guy with beautiful, someone who really cares about and understands women. >> my first time voting, it was -- gerri: really? what do you make of this? part of the problem with this for me is that it is yet more evidence that the president is not being presidential.
. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think peo
apologize. you say specifically, it is about obama voters return to romney. there's no logic there. you can't bring yourself to vote for the black man again. you tried it. he didn't magically change the word. you can comfort by getting into your prejudices or else you really hate the gays. we were saying saturday night rude, it really is -- that's the question i hear from most -- how could this even be close? it is so terrifying to most people. i think that -- you know, the prospect of a romney presidency. >> yeah. that to me is where truly the only explanation that works is okay, we're going to go back to our comfort in racism and that we were good people once. but you know, we don't have to do it again now. and i actually loved there were a couple of editorials i read, right wing blogs and other places saying but you know, to really show we're not racist by voting out the black president. >> stephanie: that's post-racial. >> yes. >> stephanie: but you talk about the mainstream media coverage this week. i love w
women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out game -- who can get their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a senior writer for the associated press. let's hear from david on our independent line in texas. caller: hello. i believe obama has no problem. this is the media just keeping the news going. i am in texas. i am over 60. out of my whole family there are two of us that have landlines. i get maybe 8 or so calls per month on my machine. being in texas, hardly any true christian is going to vote for romney, who is a mormon. he has no chance. host: let's get a response. are you seeing any of those concerns in iowa? guest: i can tell you this. i'm over 60 as well, so i und
that the obama campaign was relying on to get the voters out to the polls. you also argue that mitt romney is the one who has ground to make up in a crucial swing states, like ohio and virginia. it will make it difficult for him. right now it is hard to tell whose campaign is going to be most affected. host: early voting, are you looking at how the race to get those votes in the bank before election day rolls around might be impacted? caller: we are. most of the states do not have early voting. pennsylvania, for example, does not have early voting. virginia does not allow it unless you have a special exception that allows you to vote absentee before the election. north carolina, which is an early casualty of hurricane sandy, has early voting. the question of just, basically, which ones are going to be affected most, it is hard to say. maryland suspended early voting today. and the other hand, that is a safely blue state, so that will probably not impact the outcome. host: jody rights in -- host: are the campaign's looking at what kind of impact of this could have in terms of big repercussi
leaving president obama among likely voters in the critical battleground state of ohio. this is a first in this race. it is a significant shift from just a week ago when the president governor romney were tied at 40%. in most polls, the president had been leading governor romney in ohio. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and also the host of the show "power play." chris, some events are being canceled because they are not being affected by hurricane sandy, but how many times have we talked about the likely voter polls, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what we have seen has been a slow-motion surge from mitt romney. it started after his first debate and has mo
the obama team knows that lesson. >> you know we look at what changes voters' minds or persuades people to vote one way or another. time and time again we're told it's face-to-face human to human interaction which would imply having a good ground game, organized field office and operation is going to be good for the president, especially right now where he is in the white house and not participating in the campaign as much. >> that's exactly right. mitt romney's campaign has about 300 field offices. >> i have to cut you off. listen to what president has to say about hurricane sandy. >> briefing from our emergency response teams, including fema, and agencies that are going to be helpful in the response and recovery efforts, the department of energy, the department of transportation, the department of health -- homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware at this point that this is going to be a big and powerful storm. and all across the eastern seaboard i think everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the gove
to is the fairest of the mall, and we recommend it highly. good to have you with us. a new obama campaign ad reaching out to female voters, testing the boundaries of decency, breaking the boundaries of class and propriety. coming up next, former defense secretary donald rumsfeld joins us, fomer reagan adviser arthur laugher. stay with us. we are tracking hurricanes sandy. the very latest for you. this looks like the real deal. ♪ ♪ lou: president's -- residents along the east coast are bracing for hurricane sandy, not due to make landfall in text and -- until next week, but it looks like it could be a spectacular event come early tuesday. hurricane sandy has been battering the bahamas, tearing to the caribbean, killing at least 40 people, that is how powerful the storm has been. still more than 400 miles southeast of south carolina. top winds are barely hurricane strength right now. however, if it should hit the atlantic coast, the neurologists are saying it could blend with a winter storm creating what would be a very dangerous monstrous storm. fox news meteorologist joining us to explai
and obama campaigns say they will suspended their fundraising e-mails to voters on the east coast out of consideration for the storm's impact. >>> hurricane sandy, its impact already being felt on the u.s. financial markets. there will be no trading on the floors of the new york stock exchange or the nasdaq today no. electronic trading on those markets, either. they could remain closed tomorrow as well but that decision will be made later today. >>> people who live in treasure island can stop boiling their drinking water now. the tests show the water is now safe to drink. the san francisco public utilities commission says residents should flush their appliances and pipes first. that's after the water main broke on friday night. >>> back to the world series coverage. as we mentioned earlier, giants 3rd baseman pablo sandoval was named world series mvp. the man nick named the panda hit .500 during the world series and in that big game 1 he hit three home runs. . >> had a great series. >>> it was a big celebration at san francisco's sisk center last night where thousands gathered to watc
, that is the drive he is making for the few voters that remain. he is not the guy that president obama castigated as a hard hearted extremist and that is why paul ryan has disappeared. you do not see him in ohio. >>chris: what do you mean? >> you will see him in alabama and south carolina. >> please. there is one inconvenient fact, juan, and --. >>juan: the key is the new voters and turn out. you talk about the contacts but the fact that there are ten million new voters mostly young people, blacks, hispanics, something hard to make up for and that, so far, in the early voting karl talked about, you look at the results from early voting, they favor president obama because they have turned out. karl: if you look at ohio, 57 percent of the absentee ballot requests come from democrats would votes in none, one, two of the last elections and 70's percent come from those who voted in one, two or none so the democrats are cannibalizing the election day turn out and the republicans are getting the new turn out. >>juan: but the results are obama is beating romney on votes cast. karl: not in obama. >>chri
in the polls is how you close the gap among women voters and now the obama campaign is trying to win back women, especially young women with ads like this from actress leena dunham. >> it should be with a guy who is beautiful, someone who cares about and understands women, my first was-- it was awed aid i went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain for barack obama. >> and joining us mary anne marsh, i'm going to ask you, politics aside, as a woman, were you offended at all by the ad? >> look, i think i'm more offended by the bulk of this campaign. i think surprising to many. including many on your set having to talk about abortion, contraception, rape and when you consider how much time has been given to all of those topics, this is no surprise. charles: a lot of the stuff you're talking about, maybe someone had an interview during a heated debate. this was something that was planned out and you've got to believe that the obama administration green lighted it. >> hold on, charles, those were gaffes in every single case that's what that person believed. only became a mistake when th
-49. but, argues mo shgamong voters that are mind, governor romney garnered 51% versus president obama, 41 and 48, and, around the centers yesterday, the issue of benghazi is bubbling up and people are demanding answers from the administration. i think it will have a big impact in the state of wisconsin. >> chris: we'll get to benghazi in a little later in our discussion, senator udall, i was surprised to learn 80% of voters in your state will have voted before election day and the romney camp says they are winning in absentee requests and early voting and are also swinging the suburbs around denver, that went for obama, four years ago. >> good morning, chris. we have a great ground game here in colorado. you are right, about 80% of votes will be cast before election day. but, in the end, colorado will go for a president who has overseen slow but steady economic growth an unemployment levels below 8% and the coloradans look for a leader who says what he means and means what he says and governor romney has three problems, we don't know if it is moderate mitt or me, too, mitt or conservative
propensity voters and more persuade a bowl. --persuadable. obama has a greater amount of people to go after but mitt romney cannot ignore these people either. these are lower information voters and not people following the elections as closely as many of the cspan voters are. these people can be persuaded to vote for mr. runyan. both campaigns will be out there working very hard to get the vote on election day. host: quick comment? caller: i wish the gentleman would look at the desk moines, iowa race. that was a very fevered endorsement that he gave. the economy is linked to what is going on in other countries. that is an endorsement that was given. thank you all. host: one final call and one tweet - this is in " the new york times" this morning -- guest: ironically, if al gore had asked for a statewide recounts in florida, he would have won. the supreme court would not have shut it down. the media came in afterwards and requested those ballots. he would have lost under the recounted s four which was to do only the high democratic counties. there were a lot of democratic votes for gore in t
am pro-barack obama. and a lot of his early voting on the democrat side, there are a lot of voters that normally would not vote on election day. is that why he is getting a big push in ohio and other states? they might have made an effort to locate first-time voters and voters that normally would not vote on election day. is this not true? i want to make a comment after you are done. guest: so far, where we have party registration, there are a good number of democrats who have voted already. the polls are showing that obama is leading the early boat much like he did in 2008. that is an aberration from our part -- previous count. from previous elections before the 2008, typically, republicans won the early voting. we have had such a high volume now and the obama campaign is encouraging their supporters to vote early. we have seen a change in behavior when campaigns can take advantage of early voting to encourage their supporters and mobilize them over a longer period of time. that is was going on on the democrat side. if you look at the numbers, there are more republicans voting ear
embraced the incumbent. obama knew what was ing to happen.wa >> in the end, voters decided to stick with bobby rush by a huge, huge, huge margin. so it was a very bruising loss for him. >> narrator: obama lost by 30 points. >> it was the first time in his life whe pe ple didn't just really accept him immediately, where things didn't really go perfectly for him. >> narrator: the loss seemed like iplmight be the end of obama's political career. >> people who saw him afterward say he was as low as they've ever seen him.ke one person who was close to him said he got the sense that senator obama really wondered if he would be able to continue in politics. >> narrator: and it raised real problems with his wife michelle. >> the bobby rush race was the nadir of the obama marriage. her feeling was, "why are you doing this?" this is the moment when they want two totally different things. you know, barack obama wants political success, and his wife wants a normal life. i asked the president and first lady how long it had taken them to recover from that period, and they said two to three years.
unemployment rate there, and i think there is a reward for obama for the sense among those voters that things are getting a little better here than maybe they otherwise would be. >> in a state that feels like it has not been than the country economically for a while, and you cannot understate how important the auto bailout political dynamic has been there. last week after she squabbled over exactly what romney said about the bailout in his op-ed, that was the most viewed "new york times" op-ed. the romney campaign is trying to project strength in ohio. john kasich came out and said romney will win ohio, but the tactics really speak and are telling a different story. they released an ad that is highly misleading. i'd love to play just that install clip of thatted. >> mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he is supported by lee iacocca and the troy news. obama took gm and chrysler to bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italens that will make jeeps in china. >> chrysler is not moving production to china. in fact, they are expanding u.s. production, and the fact they are going to sell jee
part of the issue is who is going to be able to get their voters out at this point, under what could be some difficult circumstances? >> woodruff: susan, how are you reading these polls right now? >> i'm struck over and over again by the damage that president obama did to his campaign in that first debate. it's like your mother always told you, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. in this pew poll that is just out, more than a third of voters said their impression of governor romney was improved in that first debate. we know from the usa today gallup poll that the first debate had much more impact than the second and third debates. thought president obama won the second and third debates but it's the first debate that had such a big impression. another thing that strikes me. 47-47, 49-49. in an election that is that tight and in an election where the president is probably. .. has a slightly better standing in the swing states, we could have the kind of split decision we had in 2000. where president obama wins the electoral college and mitt romney wins the popula
